SURPRISE! A wedding gown story

We couldn’t be more honored to be a part of a truly special surprise. Best of luck to Miranda and her mother Kim in pulling off this wonderful surprise! by Kim Stevens This dress is being preserved because my daughter, Miranda Stevens, wants to wear her Grandma’s wedding dress for her August 2017 wedding.  Grandma does NOT know that she is planning on wearing it and our hope is to surprise her when we go to “try on dresses.” (We’ve tried to slyly ask details and actually had to sneak into their house to get...

Alyson’s Wedding Gown Story

We think Alyson’s gown has such a simple, elegant beauty. We especially loved the silk belt strip breaking the alencon lace overlay that accented her figure perfectly!

Thanks for sharing, Alyson! by Alyson Flaim “I wore the gown on our wedding day May 13th, 2016. “It was purchased online through BHLDN after trying it on at the BHLDN Georgetown, DC store.

Vintage or just old? Before and after

Vintage or just old? Before and after

When this bride slipped on her sparkling, ornamented gown, we’re sure she knew her wedding day would be one to remember. What she might not have known is that her wedding dress, white, shining, and perfect as it was on the day of her wedding, would not be the same after the festivities or years later. When her dress arrived at HGP, it was wrinkled, yellowed, stained, and just felt old. While vintage is all the rage, no one wants their dress to have a vintage smell! 🙂 The intricate beading was barely holding on, half of the dress...

Jena’s Wedding Gown Story: The one and only

Note: We’ve never seen a lace with the same design as the lace overlay of Jena’s gown. The blush silk satin underneath really highlights that pattern and gives it the attention it deserves! Thanks Jena, for sharing the background of this unique dress with us! by Jena McRae I could not love this gown more!! I knew I wanted to go with a vintage look, but most genuine vintage dresses don’t fit me right… And I don’t love most wedding dresses. I considered going with something really untraditional at some point. But...

12 Clever Couple Costumes for Halloween 2016

Every year when Halloween rolls around we all face the classic dilemma: what should I be for Halloween? Add in a boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife/significant other and the stakes are even higher– do we wear a “couple’s costume” or do our own thing? If you decide to go with the latter (it’s more fun that way, right?) you probably want costumes that are clever, unique, and EASY for you and your significant other this Halloween. Luckily, we have 12 costumes rounded up for you to feed your costume...

Melissa’s Wedding Gown Story: Memories to pass on

Note from HGP: We love how Melissa’s gown has the crystal beading down the center – front and back. It adds the perfect sparkle! Her pearl buttons are also a rare sight- most dresses we work with use cloth buttons. We’re so grateful Melissa took the time to share her sweet story with us!   Melissa K. purchased her Allure Couture bridal gown from Flares Bridal + Formal in Walnut Creek, CA. She wed her husband Louis at the Berkeley City Club in March 2015, just 2 weeks after giving birth to their 3rd child. Their...
